For fans of dark urban fantasy comes a novel that questions why forbidden fruit is always the most tempting...

A vampire-themed masquerade party isn’t really her scene, but Nora is sick of frat parties and bars. When she meets Alec, the appeal suddenly becomes clear. It’s obvious that they’ve been struck by the same intense mutual attraction, but Alec keeps his distance. Intrigued despite herself, Nora pushes a little deeper — and discovers Alec’s unimaginable secret...

Nora is not afraid of following Alec into the darkness, but the choice is soon taken from her. Someone is hunting her — someone tied to the secret and desperate to see it play out. But when Nora finally meets her aggressor, she finds herself hopelessly drawn to him. She needs to make a choice between the two men, but can she save them both, knowing one is destined to die?

Kristen’s Review:

Not Your Typical Vampire Story…..

Two brothers, a college student, vampires, a Biblical mystery, a love triangle and a curse stemming from the beginning of man, together made a very interesting story. It took me a few chapters to really get into to this book. I felt like the something was lacking in the beginning. Perhaps more character development on the heroine? Or maybe the instant love was too rushed. Though it was enough to keep me reading and I am so glad that I did! 

Once the story picked up I was all in. Scarlet, Nora’s college roommate takes her to a vampire themed masquerade party. Here, Nora meets Alec who she feels an instant attraction to. Things get steamy quickly between the two of them and then he takes off. This becomes a habit of Alec’s right from the start. Nora knows he has dark secrets and is trying to warn her off, but she cannot deny herself the attraction they share. Add Alec’s brother Caleb to the mix as the mysteries of this story unfold and you will find yourself hooked.

This book does not have a cliff hanger but is nicely set up for future books. I will definitely be reading the next in this series. I have to know how the three of them continue to work out the dynamics of their relationship. If you like vampire themed books you will truly enjoy this take on the genre.

About The Author:

 

Sarah Daltry writes about the regular people who populate our lives. She’s written works in various genres – romance, erotica, fantasy, horror. Genre isn’t as important as telling a story about people and how their lives unfold. Sarah tends to focus on YA/NA characters but she’s been known to shake it up. Most of her stories are about relationships – romantic, familial, friendly – because love and empathy

are the foundation of life. It doesn’t matter if the story is set in contemporary NY, historical Britain, or a fantasy world in the future – human beings are most interesting in the ways they interact with others. This is the principle behind all of Sarah’s stories. Sarah has spent most of her life in school, from her BA and MA in English and writing to teaching both at the high school and college level. She also loves studying art history and really anything because learning is fun. When Sarah isn’t writing, she tends to waste a lot of time checking Facebook for pictures of cats, shooting virtual zombies, and simply staring out the window.
